BH4BP #9 – Lattes, Mochas, Drip Coffee and Tea

This week, I start off the show by discussing what your best drink option is at your local coffee shop. I go over the advantages and disadvantages of lattes, mochas, drip coffees and teas. I go over the calorie content of each drink and why some drinks might be better for you then others.  Some references that I used are calorie-count.com and web.md.

I end the show by addressing some questions from Kimberly from Oregon, Rednikki from California and Kim from Michigan.

    In my opinion the Wii Fit is a good addition to ones program but should not be ones only source of fitness….agreed! Great tips for breakfast as well! Thanks!

  2. Wow! Thanks Tali.

    Thanks for all your research results. A lot of great info in your show. All I can say is I’m glad I only drink tea! It makes it an easy decision really…

    As someone who once drank a pumpkin spice latte on a daily basis with nonfat milk and gain 10lbs in one month, I enjoyed how you put all the information in simplistic terms. I would forget that eventhough I was drinking the latte with nonfat milk, it’s still has calories and I didn’t even consider the calories in pumpkin spice syrup. Great podcast, truly enjoyed it.

    I just discovered your podcast and it is just what I’ve been looking for!

    I’m a coffee freak. My drink of choice was a 16oz iced mocha (espresso, 3 heaping squirts of ghirardelli chocolate, and 2% milk). at least 7 a week. Which of course led my doctor to tell me that my cholesterol was way to high and I needed to lower it or go on medicine (I’m 26!). So I bit the bullet and cut back to a 16oz skim milk vanilla latte about 3 times a week.

    But listening to your podcast really helped me get the facts straight and I might take one more step back to drinking tea. Hopefully that, along with a normal exercise routine, will save me from having to medically treat my lifestyle problems.

    Great Work. You’ve just got one more regular listener!
